We're so thrilled to announce that we expanded our operations this month! We’re now in Busia County!
We're so glad you asked! As of 2019, only 6% of households in Busia had access to electricity. Which is about one-quarter of the rate in Kenya: 22.69%. High reliance on tin lamps and lanterns contrasts a national trend where more households are taking up electricity and solar for lighting.
As DGE, we're on a mission to brighten the lives of the 150k+ households in Busia, currently living without reliable energy access.
And this is a great step!
